The first complete curriculum unit of a 9th grade Social Studies course entitled "Global Studies I". Includes a unit description, rationale, essential questions, key terms, CCSS & C3 alignment, pre-assessment, suggested formative assessments, summative assessment/performance task, study guides, answer keys, rubrics, and resources. Included rubrics can be modified to adhere to any CCSS aligned school-wide writing rubric. Reading assessments are modeled after current SAT Social Studies question stems (and are admittedly new, so may require some tweaking).
The first of 5 units that make up Global Studies 1, a course which looks at the origins of the 21st century global community through a thematic, skill-based approach.
* I intend on uploading the following 4 units, as well as Global Studies II (3 units, 1 semester) for sale throughout the summer. If you are interested please drop me a line, and let me know what an appropriate price for each unit might be (I'm new to this). Thank you. Ratings/comments/critiques would be appreciated also.
